We use our expertise in emergency management, homeland security planning and operations, public relations and public information dissemination to design preparedness plans and training and awareness materials specifically focused on client needs
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) August 17, 2009
Vistra Communications announced new planning and communications efforts to assist businesses, schools and government agencies with preparing for a pandemic influenza. Using its emergency planning and communications expertise, Vistra provides unique insights to assist organizations with maintaining operations and keeping their workforce safe during a pandemic.
"We provide specially tailored preparedness plans, training packages and educational materials to assist with educating your workforce about swine flu and pandemic influenza," said Brian Butler, President of Vistra Communications. While the federal government and some state and local agencies have made a wealth of information available, that information can be somewhat overwhelming when trying to implement a plan for an organization's specific situation. Butler served on the Homeland Security Council in the White House where he co-authored The National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza Implementation Plan.
"We use our expertise in emergency management, homeland security planning and operations, public relations and public information dissemination to design preparedness plans and training and awareness materials specifically focused on client needs," said Butler.
Just as companies prepare for hurricanes and other natural disasters, they should also plan to operate during a pandemic. Keeping your employees safe and your business operational will require you to do more than just tell your employees to wash their hands and cover their mouths when they cough.
Whether you need help reviewing and assessing your contingency plans, educating and communicating with your workforce, or developing visual materials to help keep your company operational, the Vistra Communications Team is ready to assist.
The Vistra Team has extensive emergency planning expertise and is uniquely skilled at working complex community safety issues including natural disasters, responding to disease outbreaks, developing bio-terrorism preparedness plans and planning for a pandemic.
